Mark Hollis is the only solo album by the former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis. It was released on Polydor Records on 26 January 1998, then reissued on Pond Life on 13 March 2000. In 2003, the album was released in LP format on Universal Records.

Mark David Hollis (4 January 1955 – 25 February 2019) was an English musician and singer-songwriter. He achieved commercial success and critical acclaim in the 1980s and 1990s as the co-founder, lead singer and principal songwriter of the band Talk Talk. Hollis wrote or co-wrote most of Talk Talk's music-including hits like "It's My Life" and "Life's What You Make It"-and in later works developed an experimental, contemplative style.

Mark Hollis sole album from 1998 is a must for fans of the last two Talk Talk albums. The album continues the style that Talk Talk set on Laughing Stock. The music is more quiet than Talk Talk though. This is for now the only solo album from Mark Hollis and I think he retired from the music business after this. It tells a bit about the man and his music.

Mark Hollis of the band Talk Talk has died, aged 64. He was one of the driving forces behind the band in their early stages. After the band disbanded in 1991, Hollis released a well received, self-titled solo album in 1998 before retiring from the music industry. Speaking about his decision not to tour and to maintain a private lifestyle at the time, Hollis said: I choose for my family. Maybe others are capable of doing it, but I can’t go on tour and be a good dad at the same time. Pope said on Twitter: Goodbye to Mark Hollis of Talk Talk. Condolences to his lovely family. We had many, many laughs together. Goodbye to Mark Hollis of Talk Talk.

Mark Hollis' haunted and word-swallowing singing to the musical hints that the band was more interested in 1970s prog than 80s dance-rock. On The Colour of Spring, the big, romantic ballads were still there, but they were strangely muted. Where Laughing Stock creates multiple environments, Mark Hollis is intimate, almost shockingly so. Hollis often sings as if he's right up against your ear, at a volume designed to not wake spouses and small children. Listening, you often feel like you're eavesdropping on a musician working in the supposed seclusion of his home. Indeed, like few other records I know- maybe Panda Bear 's Young Prayer and Arthur Russell 's World of Echo - Mark Hollis creates the sensation that you're very much in the room where it was recorded.
